Simple Tip: Color Your Drinks With a Drop of Food Coloring

This past 4th of July, my gal TeamSugar really wowed me with a fantastic party trick. In order to create a display of red, white and blue bubbly, she used a rose champagne, regular champagne and a tiny drop of blue food coloring in regular champagne. She also said the the amount of dye was so minimal that it didn't change the flavor at all. Personally I think it's one of those "Doh! I can't believe I didn't think of that!" sort of tips. It really adds a bit of fun and completes the visual package. Oh and since today is Embrace Your Geekiness Day, I should also point out that Team's brother thought the blue concoction was similar to Romulan Ale. If you don't believe me, you can even check out a clip of the Enterprise crew partaking in some booze.

No, blue tongues! I am sure if you drank a bottle of blue champagne that might be a different story! :)

That seems like a neat idea.It does work in lemonade.I tried it for my kids and they loved it.

kikidawn - it should work for lemonade also, any light colored liquid should take the coloring (lemonade might result with a cloudy blue).

I find this a bit odd. Maybe even a bit unappealing...???

Oh I wonder if this would work for other drinks. Like what if I put food coloring in say lemonade?!
